New Blood - Nickel Creek Lyrics

Nickel Creek CHORDS

New Blood

Friend when I hear you speak
It's like listening to the mirror
We steel ourselves against the advancing seas
Friend when I hear you speak
It's like listening to the mirror
And dissenting neighbors

We are one
But when
Has one
Ever been
Enough
Old friends?

New blood come and bring my blood to boil
Let's melt the wall down and form a pearl
Been stuck on the sound of my own voice
You're my grain of sand and, buddy, I'm your oyster

Have you read the Times today?
We are this poor world's virus
Its fever's fit to spike and, buddy, when it breaks
Who cares what the papers say
When we have the word of Jesus
Which of those old verses will you dust off to prove a just God
To help us lose our taste for their worldly ways
Chafe, fellow strangers, chafe
Would still want to save us?
Comfort has failed to save us)
That His love might save us
We are one

We are lost
We've prayed and we've prayed but we're no less afraid
We've thought and we've thought but we're no better off

Cause one's
Never been
Enough
Old friends
Deep ruts
Dead ends
Good luck
Amen

New blood come and bring my blood to boil
Let's melt the wall down and form a pearl
Been stuck on the sound of my own voice
You're my grain of sand and, buddy, I am your
New blood come and bring my blood to boil
Let's melt the wall down and form a pearl
Been stuck on the sound of my own voice
You're my grain of sand and, buddy, I'm your oyster
